Elles Bailey
has a talent for crafting and seamlessly weaving rootsy blues, country, and soulful rock, with a contemporary edge. What’s more fate has blessed her with a ‘smoky vocal’ style that perfectly fits her music, after a stint in hospital as a child changed her voice forever.
Her debut album Wildfire (Sept 1st 2017) which debuted at no.2 in the iTunes blues Charts was tracked in Blackbird studios Tennessee. Produced by Brad Nowell ‘Wildfire’ assembled a host of Nashville’s finest, including Grammy Award winning guitarist Brent Mason and three-time ‘Musician Hall Of Famer’ Bobby Wood. Blended together back in the UK with the likes of Jonny Henderson (Robyn Ford, Matt Schofield) on Hammond organ and Joe Wilkins on blistering guitar, the result is a unique trans-Atlantic coming together of styles.
Reviewers have been wowed by Elles and her debut album with Maverick Magazine gave ‘Wildfire’ top marks (5/5) calling every song ‘Fresh & Original’ And Blues In Britain reminding us that ‘It’s a fact that very few make it to the big stage but Elles Bailey has the necessary talent, the drive, and now the product.’

Thea Gilmore - Exeter Phoenix, Gandy Street, Exeter EX4 3LS - 7.00pm - £19.50+ seated - Box Office - telephone 01392 667080. For more information and tickets go to website

Since releasing her debut as a teenager nearly 20 years ago, the Oxfordshire-raised, Cheshire-based singer and songwriter Thea Gilmore has gained global acclaim for making music not only of extraordinary beauty, but of rare honesty and insight.

In 2009 Thea released Strange Communion an immediately acclaimed collection of seasonal songs ranging from joyful to meditative, from introspective to darkly humorous. The album contained That’ll Be Christmas which became the most played festive song on BBC Radio 2 that year and was described by Chris Evans as ‘the best Christmas song in years’.

Her 2018 acoustic Christmas Party UK tour will feature material from Strange Communion laced liberally with the occasional diverse, highly individual versions of a Christmas classic. Enjoy the superb musicianship always on display from Thea’s band and at the heart of the show – Thea’s spine-tingling, pure-toned voice guaranteed to leave you moved, exhilarated and spellbound.

Unavailable for some five years, finally now in 2018 Thea is set to release a ‘deluxe’ reissue of Strange Communion in November with four brand new bonus tracks.

Four times nominated in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards (their time will come!) and described by The Guardian as ‘exceptional songwriters’, Belinda and Heidi’s powerful, deeply moving and soulful performances are infused with an honesty and empathy that went down a storm at their last appearance with us.

Martin Harley - The Barrel House, 59a High Street, Totnes, Devon TQ9 5PB - Doors 8.00pm Tickets £18.00 Seated: £15.00 Standing. Booking office 01803 863000 - more information and tickets on website

Martin  Harley  is  a  supremely  talented  acoustic  roots  and  blues  guitarist,  singer  and songwriter with a burgeoning global reputation.

Live at Southern Ground, his eagerly anticipated new album was recorded in Nashville in collaboration with Daniel Kimbro (Jerry Douglas, Larkin Poe) on upright bass.

As Martin explains “I wanted to make something representative of where I’m at musically at the moment with an album that reflects on the last year solo and duo touring. Daniel and I met in Knoxville through a mutual friend... he handed me his card which read... 'alright guitar player... good upright bass player’ ... an understatement on both parts!”

A mixture of retrospective solo and duo arrangements recorded during an afternoon at the esteemed  Southern  Ground  studio  in  Nashville,  Live  at  Southern  Ground  features  Martin on Weissenborn... a traditional Hawaiian acoustic guitar played across the lap, resonators and archtops, and of course Daniel Kimbro on upright bass. 

“It's a simple, honest and direct album with no overdubs in a warm sounding room with some great microphones and two new friends playing a few songs over a cold beer or two” says  Martin.  “There’s  a  great  feeling  when  you  click  with  someone.  It  frees  you  up  to experiment with the arrangement and the dynamic of a song.

”Live at Southern Ground follows on from Martin’s five previously acclaimed albums, most recently  Mojo  Fix  in  2012.  Along  with  many  years  of  international  touring  and  countless festivals Martin has built a strong international fan-base across the globe.

Renowned  for  his  prowess  as  a  slide  guitarist,  Martin  is  almost  unique  in  the  UK  in  his playing lap slide. During year-round worldwide touring he’s absorbed a plethora of diverse influences, honing his craft into the classic songwriting style he possesses today.

In  the  US,  Martin  has  headlined  Music  City  Roots  in  Nashville  and  toured  coast  to  coast with ZZ Ward, Delta Rae and opened for Iron and Wine, Bruce Hornsby, Five for Fighting, World Party, Beth Hart, Joe Bonamassa amongst many others.

Knight & Spiers-"This special concert will include seasonal music taken from the English tradition and beyond".

On a summer's day in 2016, the organisers of FolkEast Festival masterminded one of the most intriguing and exciting collaborations on today's folk scene. 

Peter Knight, legendary violinist and ex-member of folk-rock band Steeleye Span was paired with leading melodeon player and ex-Bellowhead member, John Spiers, for a special one-off performance which left audiences in awe. With no space to be found in the marquee, people stood five deep in the pouring rain in order to witness the bringing together of two of the most genuinely gifted musicians in their respective fields.
With a standing ovation and roars for more, and much to the delight of folk fans everywhere, Knight and Spiers decided not to leave things there. 
The pairing of violin and melodeon is not a new one, but in the hands of Knight and Spiers, Improvisation and invention meet the listener at every turn. Together they have created a musical document that resonates with history, but also something that should inspire future generations of musicians to engage with Britain’s folk dancing heritage, and the beautiful, mysterious tunes that can be found within that heritage.
These uniquely gifted musicians make a sublime pairing, and create a live performance to be remembered for a long time. 
“Knight’s playing is a revelation. A world away from folky fiddling, it’s fully informed by the classical style, all long sweeping bow strokes and eloquent legato. Yet he never loses the essential folk heart of the music, tracing a graceful line of his own making”
Review of Cambridge Folk Festival’s ‘City Roots’ 
"John’s elegant, rhythmic and virtuoso playing and easy-going folk club banter is a quiet triumph!” 
Robin Denselow, The Guardian

If you are feeling a little dismayed with the over-commercialisation of “Christmas present” then join Jim for a journey through Christmas past that will be guaranteed to get you in the festive spirit!
Since the release of his debut album in 2005, Causley’s unique voice and persona have helped him become one of the most well-loved and respected figures of today’s contemporary roots and folk scene. A prolific collaborator, Causley is hugely admired for his work with iconic groups The Devil’s Interval and Mawkin:Causley as well as playing, touring and recording alongside Waterson:Carthy, John McCusker, Eddie Reader, Graham Coxson, Shirley Collins, Michael Morpurgo, Show of Hands, Kate Rusby, David Rotheray of Beautiful South fame and many more.

Westcountry father of folk Geoff Lakeman described Causley as possessing “A voice in a million” in a recent interview in the Western Morning News, some accolade indeed!
More than simply a folk-singer, multi award winning singer-songwriter, musician and proud Devonian Jim Causley is an all-round entertainer and during the past decade Causley has been nominated no less than six times for a BBC Radio 2 Folk Award, last year he was nominated as “Singer of the Year” at the 2017 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, he won the Spiral Earth Singer of the Year award in 2014, presented his own folk music show on BBC Radio Devon and in 2015 he worked with BBC TV historian Dr Sam Willis to create the music for his show 'Highwaymen, Outlaws and Villains' and was asked to perform his song about Dartmoor tin mining 'Pride of the Moor' on BBC TV's Countryfile - Dartmoor Special.

SONG - Shammick Acoustic - WINTER WARMER A show presented by Vicki Swan and Jonny Dyer.
A welcome return to Vicki & Jonny, who were last guests at Shammick Acoustic way back in 2011. This duo have impressive musical backgrounds. Vicki having studied at the Royal College of Music, plays a huge variety of instruments, from various types of bagpipe to the nyckelharpa, a Swedish keyed fiddle, and is almost single-handedly responsible for the huge upsurge in the popularity of that instrument. Jonny too shows outstanding technical ability on guitar and other stringed instruments, and on piano accordion. His wide-ranging musical taste has made him a tireless and forceful musical innovator. Rather than their usual traditional and original folk music, this time they come ready to charge everyone up for Christmas with their 'Winter Warmer' show, a fun-filled festive evening of well-known singalong carols interspersed with famous Music Hall numbers and other seasonal favourites. Performed in Victorian costume, this will appeal to everyone, young and old, as they present their light-hearted, humorous and fun show. Come along and get in the mood!

Admission on guest nights £8.00 (£7.00 if bought in advance) ~ and members of Shammick Acoustic get a further reduction, priced at £7.00 (£6.00 if bought in advance). PLEASE NOTE: ‘paid in advance’ means paid, it doesn’t mean ‘reserved in advance’. Advance tickets can be bought up to a month before the event at Shammick Acoustic Sessions, OR at The Pack O’ Cards OR at Pet's Pantry in Combe Martin High Street. Advance tickets for non-members, can also be purchased by going to WeGotTickets
